ADMINISTRATION 
Ms. Ellen Parker

During your first year as principal of Methuen High, you

dignity. We, the "Class of Nineteen-hundred and Ninety- 
nine," chose to follow your example and live true to the 
name, "the Class with class." We would like to sincerely 
thank you for the outstanding year that you have been 
such a part of. You have proven yourself a prominent 
leader in the school system and community. We wish you 
the best of luck in your future endeavors as the principal 
of Methuen High School. 

Sincerely,

Mr. A. Steven Francis, Assistant Principal 

Mr. Francis, every year we rant and rave about you. Why? Plain and simple, you are 
one of the best. You have a wonderful personality that shines through to everyone 
you meet. We have never met a more devoted member of the Methuen High School 
Administration. Compassionate and supportive are just two words that only begin to 
describe the individual we all know and love. Whether one needs advice or just 
wants to talk, you are always there. There isn't enough time and space to point out 
all the great things you have done for us. We, the "Class of 1999" and the yearbook 
staff would like to thank you for everything you have done for us; we appreciate it to 
the highest degree. 




Ms. Jane Obshatkin, Vice Principal 

The first year you arrived at Methuen High, you immediately made an impact on our 
student lives. We respected you and you respected us. You are caring and 
professional, qualities necessary to be a great educator and administrator. We, the 
"Class of 1999" thank you for your dedication and service. 




Ms. Suzanne Kelly, Assistant Principal 

Though this was only your second year with us at Methuen High School, you have 
already gained the respect of the faculty as well as the students. You have created a 
strong and personable relationship with the students here, and we, the "Class of 
1999" wish you the best of luck in all of your endeavors. 



DEDICATION 



One never knows when or where you 

might come across an angel. 

For all you know, the next person you meet 

may be an angel in disguise. 

We were fortunate to have three 
such angels among us: 



Melissa Kern 



Vicky L f It alien 



Kristen Santoro 



. . . "These young ladies exuded warmth and kindness. They 
had the uncanny ability of turning negatives into positives; 
bad to good. " 



See pages 42, 43 and 44 for colored pictures of our three angels > 



Yearbook Staff 



Dear Class of 1999, 

My staff consisted of 5 individuals who 
devoted much of their time and energy 
into producing this book. Together, we 
worked many a Friday night and weekend 
to create a book that was not just another 
yearbook. We wanted this book to have 
special meaning to you, one that would 
be treasured throughout your life. 

Sincerely, 
Nick Collopy 
Editor-in-Chief

cfa« of 1999 ^s 




Melissa Kern 

Melissa defined the notion of a best friend. She was there 
any time anyone needed her, always willing to share a tear 
or a laugh. She is sadly missed by all who had the good 
fortune of knowing her. 

A pretty smile on a pretty face 

No one else will ever take your place. 

Your hair so blonde and your eyes so blue 

this is how we'll remember you. 

Someday God may tell us why 

He broke our hearts and let you die 

There are others, yes we know 

But you were our friend 

and we loved you so. 




Vicky L ' Italien 



Vicki was a bright light in art class and everywhere else. 
She brought warmth, vitality, exuberance, and a unique 
attitude that was contagious. She was always upbeat and 
her infectious smile brightened the classroom on the 
cloudiest of days. We are all fortunate that Vicki entered 
our lives and feel a greater love because of her. 

. . . "Truly angels, they were sent to Earth to make each 
one of us see that there is good everywhere and in 
everyone; we just might have to look a little harder or 
deeper than we normally do to find it. " 

. . . "When 1 heard the song playing in the background, "I 
Am Your Angel, " I thought it was a message from above. 
When you hear it, think of our angels. " 





Kristen Santoro 




If ever there was a smile that could brighten a room, 
laughter that could pull you out of the gloomiest of moods 
and a mind like a steel trap, they belonged to Kristen. Al- 
though Kristen was not with us for long, her impact on this 
school community has been immeasurable. Kristen was the 
"comeback kid," someone who not only recognized her 
mistakes and faults, but worked diligently to correct them. 
There are not many people in this world big enough to do* 
either one of those things, much less both. 

. . . "We all have angels guiding us. . . they look after us, heal 
us, touch us, comfort us with invisible warm hands. I believe 
that they are watching over us and guiding us along the 
way. Their spirit has brought us closer together in what! 
many have described as a state of unconditional love. "

Varsity Football 

The 98 Rangers prevailed with one of the 
best seasons coach Larry Klimas has seen 
in a while. Methuen, who ended up with 
an 8-3 record, started out from the blocks 
with a bang, knocking off five straight 
teams that included Saugus, Danvers, 
Chelmsford, Billerica, and Tewksbury. 
With a 5-0 record, the Rangers faced-off 
against rival, unbeaten Andover. The Blue 
took one on the chin and fell 27-8. Within 
the next four games, the Rangers went 
.500 going 2-2. Losses to Central Catho- 
lic and Lowell knocked them out of Super 
Bowl hopes. However, Thanksgiving Day 
proved special to the home crowd of 
1800 fans when the Rangers romped their 
long-time rival Dracut 34-6. This game 
meant a lot to the senior players who 
dedicated this game to the 4 girls who 
died tragically in car accidents. This 
season, which will remain in the seniors' 
hearts forever, will also be a constant 
memory to all. The team and student 
body at Methuen High helped each other 
cope with the loss of their Four "Angels".

Girls' Basketball 



The 1999 Girl's Basketball team had one of their greatest seasons ever, by 
refusing defeat. Led by their captains, Lisa Golobski and Hilary Glynn, they 
prevailed on by winning the Christmas Tournament vs. archrival, Andover 
then the Division 1 North Finals vs. Haverhill 59-46. At this pace the Lady 
Rangers were unstoppable, as they continued their victory as Eastern Mass. 
Champs, defeating Attleboro 56-48, and finally Division 1 State Champions 
defeating Shrewsbury 50-43. This was an extremely emotional time for all 
the players, especially because they had lost four friends in a car accident 
this past fall. The girls were determined to bring MHS' spirit up, and by 
winning the state title they not only brought spirits up, they brought the 
town of Methuen its Second State Championship.

gain the MVC Small School Title, but they 
also brought home the Haverhill Invita- 
tional Title, and captured the State Class 
A Relays Championship. Methuen suf- 
fered only one loss all season, and was 
runner up to Central Catholic at the MVC 
League Meet. At this meet, Methuen 
named Brad Carson, Kevin Alliette, Mike 
Giarrusso, Derek Webley, Sean Furey, 
Doug Caux, and the 4X800 team (Erik 
Colon, Kevin Alliette, Alan Patel, and 
Andie Colon) to the All-Conference team.
